Congressman Ami Bera will donate a portion of his salary to the Sheriff's Activities League (SAL), and visit with students participating in SAL programs. Sheriff Scott Jones will be present to recognize Congressman Bera's good will, and he and Congressman Bera will collectively address the importance of the program.
In light of 8.2 percent funding cuts resulting from sequestration, Congressman Bera is donating 8.2 percent of his monthly salary to a non-profit organization within his district and potentially impacted by the budget reductions. For the month of April, he has selected the Sheriff's Activities League (SAL).SAL is a juvenile gang and crime prevention program that relies on athletic and academic activities to develop a bond between law enforcement officers and the youth in our communities.
